Daisy Miller by Henry James

December 10, 2014 @ 6:30 pm - 7:45 pm

Daisy Miller book cover

No registration required. Books are available at the Circulation Desk about a month before the discussions.

Originally published in The Cornhill Magazine in 1878 and in book form in 1879, Daisy Miller brought Henry James his first widespread commercial and critical success. The young Daisy Miller, an American on holiday with her mother on the shores of Switzerland’s Lac Leman, is one of James’s most vivid and tragic characters. Daisy’s friendship with an American gentleman, Mr. Winterbourne, and her subsequent infatuation with a passionate but impoverished Italian bring to life the themes of Americans abroad, innocence versus experience, and the grip of fate.
